JOHN TITOR QUESTION!
Hey errbody,

when john titor came back from the future, why did he want an IBM from 1975 to take to the future? What part or parts of the computer or programs did they need and what would happen if he didn't get it/them?

Huh?

Re: JOHN TITOR QUESTION!
IBM 5100

From my understanding, It had a "hidden" ability to emulate machine code operations of a more expensive mainframe type system. He needed these operations to get around some Unix bug.

Wish i could be more precise :)

John Titor is fascinating.

Re: JOHN TITOR QUESTION!
If he didn't get the machine, then there would be implications regarding hitting the well known UNIX 2038 bug (since he was 2036).

I don't know exactly how the bug and the emulator relate to each other. There is a cool PDF on the issue if you search john titor on google...I'll try to find it.

Re: JOHN TITOR QUESTION!
So he only needed one?

Has it ever been explained how he transported from one time period to another? I guess that would be the time machine thing he talked about?

The time machine:

Time machine
Titor described the time machine on several occasions. In an early post, he described it as a "stationary mass, temporal displacement unit powered by two top-spin, dual positive singularities", producing a "standard off-set Tipler sinusoid". The earliest post was more explicit, saying it contained:
Two magnetic housing units for the dual micro singularities
An electron injection manifold to alter mass and gravity micro singularities
A cooling and X-ray venting system
Gravity sensors, or a variable gravity lock
Four main caesium clocks
Three main computer units
According to the posts, the device was installed in the rear of a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible and later moved to a 1987 truck having four-wheel drive.
Titor further claimed that the "Everett-Wheeler model of quantum physics" was correct. This model, better known as the many-worlds interpretation, posits that every possible outcome of a quantum decision actually occurs in a separate "universe". Titor stated that this was the reason the grandfather paradox would not occur; following the logic of the argument, Titor would be killing a different John Titor's grandfather in a timeline other than his own.
"...The grandfather paradox is impossible. In fact, all paradox is impossible. The Everett-Wheeler-Graham or multiple world theory is correct. All possible quantum states, events, possibilities, and outcomes are real, eventual, and occurring. The chances of everything happening someplace at sometime in the superverse is 100%."[8]

This site was great, Kent gave me the link to it when I asked him some questions about Titor:

Unfortunately, the site just displays an error now. Don't know how long it's been like that. Hopefully it'll come back up again someday, LOL.
